We stopped for lunch at The Beet Box Cafe while road-tripping in Hawaii and loved their deliciously fresh veggie options. Today, they're teaching us how to cook their Portabella Stache'wich which might just be the best sandwich ever!
How did you get started?
The Beet Box Cafe got started back in February 2011. The old tenant was moving out and I was asked to put in a new cafe.
Where are you located?
We are located deep inside celestial natural foods on the North Shore of Oahu.
What are your specialities?
We are a vegetarian/vegan cafe and our specialties are everything - our menu has so many different flavors! We also serve amazing fresh juices, and superfood smoothies.
What's your personal favorite thing on the menu?
My favorite thing on the menu is probably the Burrito Babe. When I first moved to Hawaii, I was selling these burritos on the beach and they called me the burrito babe, so I knew that I wanted that on the menu. It's a veggie/tofu sauté in a peanut coconut thai curry sauce and it's delicious!
What's on the stereo?
Lionel Richie radio… duh!
Where else should we visit in your area?
Go to the beach when on the North Shore... anywhere is amazing!
Do you host any special events?
Once a year, during the Triple Crown, I host the biggest dance party of the year. U fly in DJs from the mainland and Canada, theme it and blow it up. An event not to be missed!
Is there anything else you'd like us to know?
